ANSWER: Yes! There is an ongoing demand across Canada for experienced foreign tradespeople in a range of occupations, so the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) was established. In order to move to Canada through the FSTP, foreign tradespeople must have at least two years of paid, full-time work experience within the previous five years in a qualifying trade that is classified under Major Group 72, 73, 82, 92, 632 or 633 of Canada’s National Occupation Classification (NOC). Dozens of trades qualify for the FSTP, such as bakers, butchers, carpenters, chefs, crane operators, electricians, mechanics, plumbers and welders. Besides having qualifying work experience, foreign tradespeople must possess adequate English or French language skills and satisfy health, character and other criteria. Foreign tradespeople who meet the eligibility requirements for the FSTP may be able to apply for Express Entry immigration to Canada.
